ST 1859 Gb - Obv. 1E (F:D: type - Ab) The C in VICTORIA now has an upper serif at the top
and is probably 1 size font larger as per ST 1857 C1; C3 & ST 1858 Bc.
The G in D: G: and in REGINA now have a long centre cross-bar.
* An air bubble has got stuck within the metal and caused the raised surface
on Victoria's face - from her nose to just before her hair-line, by her ear.
A fine die crack at 3 o'clock through E of REGINA 3 mm.
Rev. A1 - The ribbon on the left side has the under part of the ribbon very
weakly struck due to die wear ! The tip of the long bare stem at the left is also
worn away. See below 'Reverse varieties' for picture and details.
There is a ghosted image of Victoria's head due to die clashing.
Date: The 59 are slightly fatter and are slightly above the base line '18'.
